Secretary of State Natalie Tennant vowed to fight for our coal jobs and boost the natural gas industry for our residents in Gilmer County Wednesday afternoon.

During her stop at a gas drilling site in Glenville, Tennant said she wants to see programs that properly train our workers so out of state employees aren't coming to these sites. She also mentioned that she wants to see more cracker plants established here.

Tennant reiterated points from her Coal and Energy Jobs agenda, which she released Tuesday, saying that she will fight President Obama and the DEP on the regulations on coal fired power plants.

Tennant said she refuses to believe we have to pick between clean air and good jobs and knows that we can invest in new technologies that will allow us to do both.
